Description

I made my own plus size adaptation of Oleku, an in-fashion Nigerian fashion style.

My wrapper is knee lenght rather than mini, though it looks much shorter in the pic as Im tall and wearing heels!

I had to add a wee bit of frills to the sleeve as I love my frills. The outfit is really quick and easy to make. I cut, made the outfit one Sunday mornibg before 9am and wore it to church.

You can make a similar outfit if you are attending a Nigerian function this summer.

Material Notes

Pink floral African print fabric – wrapper
Lilac cotton – blouse

    You look terrific. The colors are very cheerful, makes you happy just to see it. Excellent choice.

    Thanks for your comments, the headgear does help complete the outfit. It nice to be able to wear brighter colours. Not sure how I end up with dark colours when I go shopping.
